Police are still trying to establish what two young Oamaru women were doing when they were hit by a truck on Saturday morning.
Madeleine Horn (18) remained in a serious condition in Dunedin Hospital's intensive care unit last night, while Ema McGeown (21), who received moderate injuries, was progressing favourably, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The CourierPost truck driver had attempted to avoid them by braking and steering into the other lane.
Yesterday, Sergeant Tony Woodbridge said there were a lot of rumours around the town, which was distressing for the young women's families.
Police were trying to find out what happened and anyone with information was asked to contact the Oamaru police.
Information was sought as to what Miss Horn and Miss McGeown were doing before the accident on Thames Highway at 2.50am.
Police officers were conducting door-to-door inquiries.
